[ aws . sso-admin ]



Updates the AWS SSO identity store attributes to use with the AWS SSO instance for attributes-based access control (ABAC). When using an external identity provider as an identity source, you can pass attributes through the SAML assertion as an alternative to configuring attributes from the AWS SSO identity store. If a SAML assertion passes any of these attributes, AWS SSO will replace the attribute value with the value from the AWS SSO identity store. For more information about ABAC, see Attribute-Based Access Control in the AWS SSO User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--instance-arn <value>
--instance-access-control-attribute-configuration <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--instance-arn (string)

The ARN of the SSO instance under which the operation will be executed.

--instance-access-control-attribute-configuration (structure)

Updates the attributes for your ABAC configuration.

AccessControlAttributes -> (list)

Lists the attributes that are configured for ABAC in the specified AWS SSO instance.


These are AWS SSO identity store attributes that you can configure for use in attributes-based access control (ABAC). You can create permission policies that determine who can access your AWS resources based upon the configured attribute value(s). When you enable ABAC and specify AccessControlAttributes, AWS SSO passes the attribute(s) value of the authenticated user into IAM for use in policy evaluation.

Key -> (string)

The name of the attribute associated with your identities in your identity source. This is used to map a specified attribute in your identity source with an attribute in AWS SSO.

Value -> (structure)

The value used for mapping a specified attribute to an identity source.

Source -> (list)

The identity source to use when mapping a specified attribute to AWS SSO.


JSON Syntax:

  "AccessControlAttributes": [
      "Key": "string",
      "Value": {
        "Source": ["string", ...]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
